I was walking with the dog back through the park after walking my daughter to the school bus pick-up on the other side of park. I turned to watch when I heard bus stop to pick up kids, so I know it was right at 8:30 AM.
When I turned back heading west I saw something very white in sky with faint black lines coming from north and south sides of the object as viewed from my perspective.
I knew it wasnít a plane because it wasnít moving and it wasnít a helicopter or plane because of its appearance; a smooth white sphere.
It stayed in same spot while I crossed a footbridge over a wash and walked slowly with my dog towards a freeway a little less than a quarter mile from the bridge.
When I got to freeway it slowly started descending and moving in a southerly direction. I watched it for a few minutes more while it moved.
Iím guessing it flew around a mile before being obscured by large trees, which are just to the west of freeway.
